Sergio Photographer: “ Susana is a being that exudes love 24/7. A wonderful and talented woman that knows the secret of how to create great photographs”

Sion Fullana: “I go crazy with Susana´s work. She is full of infinite magic. Her picture are close to the ones from the classic masters, perfect on emotion, technic and personality. They are full of feminine magic but they go straight to you soul with a sensual touch! There are some pictures i can find the words to describe them, magic and strength, the composition looks like if the spirits of Bresson or Vivian Meier where there to touch her eye while she is taking the pics and telling her how to compose and focus…”

Kelly Rashka: “ She inspire me. Her smile, her voice, her photography!! She is unreal! That woman can’t be stopped! She is a genius, powerful, magical. She makes you believe in magic, she makes magic happen. My life will never be the same after meeting her”
